PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – This Saturday at the Navy Yard, you can stop by the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society’s Fall Festival to see what other people grew and maybe get inspired to try it too. Plus, there’s lots of fun stuff for the whole family to do.

Fall is the best time to get things in the ground, and you’ll find plenty of unusual plants for sale.

In addition to fresh produce and all kinds of garden gadgets and gear, the Fall Festival will feature the PHS Kids Zone of crafts and activities to keep children happy. To keep grown ups amused, you can wander the shops of Franklin Flea or sit back and celebrate the harvest of hops and grains at the Beer Garden.

The Fall Festival is also a chance for proud gardeners to vie for prizes in two harvest contests.

Enter your ‘Garden Giants’ such as those baseball bat sized zucchinis and overly large legumes, or create a ‘Garden Bounty’ arrangement of seasonal fruit, flowers, vegetables and herbs, as you see in the photo for example!

Judging for Garden Bounty is at 11 am and Garden Giants at 12 noon. Get entry details by contacting Betty Greene at bgreene@pennhort.org and get to the Navy Yard from 10 am to 5 pm for the PHS Fall Festival.

Admission is free and so is parking.
